Some of the most renowned and respected drummers in music gather to pay tribute to the legendary John Henry Bonham.

With a rotating cast that included the likes Chad Smith, Dave Lombardo, Stephen Perkins, John Hummel, and Ray Luzier, just to name a few, the Bonzo Bash once again turned out to be the show not to miss during the NAMM festivities.

Clocking in at just over four hours, it was an evening of Led Zeppelin classics, and highlights included “Dazed and Confused,” (Will Calhoun of Living Colour on drums) “Fool in the Rain,” (with NAMM CEO Joe LaMonde on drums) and “Kashmir.” (with John Hummel behind the kit)

National Rock Review photographer Raymond Ahner was on had to report.
